The first downloadable add-on for Dark Souls III will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Japan on October 25 for 1,200 yen, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.
A Season Pass including the first and second downloadable add-ons will also be available for 2,000 yen. Buying it will also get you a PlayStation 4 custom theme.
The first add-on includes weapons such as a large sword cloaked in colorless flames, cold storm-like magic, and miracles such as a ring of light that you throw like a boomerang. It will also have a new PvP-exclusive map called the “Immortal Arena.” Screenshots in the magazine show a hazy white snow field.
Bandai Namco previously teased a “major announcement” for Dark Souls III on August 24, so we’ll probably get more details and a western release date tomorrow.
Update 10:10 a.m.: The official PlayStation Twitter account has tweeted (update: now removed) that the first Dark Souls III downloadable content, “Ashes of Ariandel,” will launch on October 25 in the west. This YouTube trailer is attached, but the video is private. The tweet was likely in error, as the “major announcement” isn’t scheduled until tomorrow.
